21st Century Skills
The Four Cs of 21st Century Skills learning, also known as the "Four Cs" or "4 Cs" are four skills that have been identified by the United States-based Partnership for 21st Century Skills (P21) as the most important skills required for 21st Century education:
- Critical Thinking
These 21st Century Skills have been identified and supported by national educational and political leaders in the United States, including President Obama. In January 2016 members of the US House of Representatives created a bipartisan Congressional 21st Century Skills Caucus. The Four Cs have been adopted and implemented into the curricula of schools, school districts, and professional development programs.
